Even regular cleaning with over-the-counter disinfectants has the potential to leave behind viruses, bacteria and even fungi that can cause illnesses. While they may not bother most people, anyone with a compromised immune system can become seriously ill. If the COVID-19 pandemic taught people nothing else, it proved how easily and quickly illness-causing agents can be transmitted.

To ensure the highest level of disinfecting possible, call in the professionals. They have access to commercial disinfectants that destroy germs rather than simply reducing their numbers. Professional remediators also have high-tech methods that are proven effective such as chemical atomizers that coat surfaces with a fast-drying mist.

It’s important to understand that sanitation is different from disinfection. Sanitation refers to cleaning, typically with products designed to lower germ levels to acceptable levels. Disinfection is the process of killing 100 percent of infectious agents within 10 minutes as per the EPA. The strategies meet with CDC recommendations.

Professional remediators will take a sample to identify the type of infectious agents that are in the environment and verify the findings through a laboratory analysis. Specific contaminated areas can be sealed off to be treated independently and whole office disinfection can be provided. Areas are disinfected and all resultant debris is disposed of in a safe manner.

Disinfection is particularly important in Florida where cases of COVID-19 are surging with people returning to work and an influx of tourists to the area. Even though vaccines are available, they don’t prevent people from contracting COVID-19 – it mitigates the symptoms if someone gets it and reduces the potential for hospitalization. However, new variants are making an appearance. The use of commercial-grade disinfectants aren’t as effective as professional methods.

Offices that have been treated with commercial disinfectants can leave traces of contaminants, unlike professional disinfection. There’s still a significant portion of the population that remains unvaccinated and professional disinfection is the best way to keep the environment safe for everyone.
